Visit our bridal shop and say yes to a Prospect dress!

November 2017


Did you know that we now have a bridal boutique at our shop in Penhill?

After their big day, it’s often the case that brides and grooms donate the clothes they wore to charity and, over the years, we have been happy beneficiaries of the outfits worn by many happy couples. On the back of this, we opened a bridal boutique in the upstairs room of our Penhill shop, from where we offer appointments for couples planning their weddings and excellent quality wedding attire at a budget price.

Andrea Piper, our Retail Area Manager, is thrilled that we are now able to provide this greatly valued service. “We stock both brand new and donated items in the boutique, with everything from bridal gowns and accessories including shoes and handbags, to clothing for the groom, such as bow ties and braces,” she says. “We currently work to a two-week wait for appointments and we offer a one-to-one service, with appointments available outside of the usual 9am-5pm working hours.”

Our Penhill shop isn’t the only one to benefit from a refresh. We recently remerchandised our Commercial Road and West Swindon shops, with our Commercial Road shop now offering furniture, fashion and a wider range of homeware and electrical items and the West Swindon shop offering…. “Both shops have more of the feel of a department store and offer a wider range of items to the local community,” Andrea added.
